    Contentment

    April 30, 2020 by Steve Nauman

    A very popular TV show of the 1960’s and still doing well in reruns to this day is The Andy Griffith Show. Many agree that the antics of Deputy Barney Fife are what made the show such a success. He had such unique mannerisms and expressions, that for simply the humor and entertainment factor I have to agree-because it’s still hard to...

    Saving Time

    March 10, 2020 by Steve Nauman

    This past weekend was the annual return to Daylight Savings Time. As usual, I heard some who were talking about how they were “going to be messed up for days because of losing that hour of sleep”. Some here in northern Indiana always talk about wishing we could go back to never moving our clocks “like we used to” (when we...

    What’s Your Hurry?

    February 5, 2020 by Steve Nauman

    Shortly after I had turned 16 years old, I tested for and received my drivers license. Then almost immediately, my father had plans for me to drive his truck to Syracuse (NY) at times—not just to give him a break (he loved being in the city and dealing with all the vendors)—but mostly because he had been waiting to have an operation...

    Life’s Too Short (It Really Is)

    January 2, 2020 by Steve Nauman

    I saw part of a late night infomercial promoting a product that was supposed to cure most any common disease, and just might allow you to live to be 120 years old! Then a vibrant, physically fit young woman started telling how she’s been taking this product and giving it to her two children. She was so excited talking about all the extra...

    Memories Of A Simple Country Christmas

    December 17, 2019 by Steve Nauman

    The memories I have of a much simpler Christmas , come from the West Smyrna Baptist Church in Smyrna, NY. That’s the church I grew up in and was there until I moved to the Elkhart area when I was 20. The church is in central NY, and the area is very hilly (and not very populated).
    But what made my memories so special was the Christmas...

    Trying To Get That Medal

    October 29, 2019 by Steve Nauman

    Today I’m going to use a story from my favorite old TV show, “The Andy Griffith Show” and contrast it with things I’ve seen!
    The episode from the TV show was called “A Medal For Opie”. The setting is that the town of Mayberry is hosting a special kids day, filled with different athletic events and other fun...

    Working On The Positives

    October 24, 2019 by Steve Nauman

    Grandpa Verne, my great grandfather, sparked some of my first interest in vegetable gardening. Grandpa was born in 1880 so many of his methods would have definitely been considered “old school” but they worked! For instance..... I can remember helping him plant his sweet corn... mainly because I had “caught” the...

    Each Strand Of “Silk”!

    October 10, 2019 by Steve Nauman

    There are different ways of learning things, such as reading about something-which is the main thing I first did when it came to my favorite hobby, gardening! Then of course we have to do more than read about something, we have to start ( at least in my case,)  experimenting with the things we have learned. 
    I’m sure there are...

    I Noticed His Work

    October 3, 2019 by Steve Nauman
    When I started school at 5 years old, I soon noticed a man working constantly inside and outside of the school building. This man looked like he really liked his job, and I could even tell that he was very good at everything he did! Although I didn’t know  who this man was, I figured he must be very important. I even thought this must...

    Keep It Simple

    September 16, 2019 by Steve Nauman
    In about 1976 while I was working full time in my fathers general store, I learned a lot with my eyes and ears—and that’s where today’s story comes from.
    It was a weekday mid afternoon, fairly quiet in that country general store. My father was in the city with the truck buying inventory for the store, and I was behind the front...
